Coming up on its 40th Anniversary, this "bucket list' marathon features the exciting and historic marathon course used largely since the first year on the Catalina Island Conservancy’s lands. This includes much of the rugged terrain, spectacular vistas, challenging climbs and special challenges enjoyed by thousands of runners over the years!
In cooperation with our host, Catalina Island Conservancy, the Catalina Island Marathon is a CUPLESS COURSE! For hydration, we will be offering participants the option to purchase a $5 Salomon reusable soft-cup or provide your own hydration system. Thank you for helping us reduce the footprint on the island!
